How to set up SGMiner?

We currently support 1 fork of SGMiner: SGMINER-AVERMORE. It supports 3 different algorithms and is available for AMD cards on Linux (msOS) and can be used with minerstat for mining X16R, X16S, and Xevan algorithms.

In this guide, we will show you how to mine RVN with SGMiner Avermore. If we missed any good fork of SGMiner on our list of supported mining clients, let us know and we will add it.

1. Address editor

Open address editor and save the the pool and the wallet for mining RVN. In this case, we will save RVN pool under (POOL:RVN) tag and RVN wallet under (WALLET:RVN) tag.

2. Default mining client

Open worker's config and select SGMINER-AVERMORE as a default mining client.

3. SGMINER-AVERMORE config

Update the mining client's configuration so that it will be defined as:

{ "pools": [ { "name": "x16r", "url": "(POOL:RVN)", "user": "(WALLET:RVN).(WORKER)", "pass": "x", "priority": "0", "profile": "x16r", "intensity":"22" } ], "profiles": [ { "name": "x16r", "algorithm": "x16r" } ], "default-profile": "x16r", "no-extranonce": true, "gpu-platform": "-1" }

(WORKER) tag will be automatically replaced with your worker's name, so you don't have to change it. As you can see SGMiner Avermore config also requiers some other parameters, so if you change the coin, don't forget to appropriately update the algorithm's name.

4. Save changes

Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining RVN with SGMiner Avermore.
